Subject: 1950 B/W British Army short subject
Recruiting film visits the Suez Canal with side trips to the local market place with native women in white burkas and British Army women in crisp uniforms. We see men playing polo and racing motorcycles, as well as German shepherds being trained for battle. Later, there is action on the road, looking for contraband and a gun battle in the jungle region, where one man is shot through his lower leg and bandaged.
The male narrator is veddy British and the music score full of upbeat military tunes.

oddball film that is, I guess, a recruitment film for the English army. Where else can you mix wartime maneuvers with hot babes and polo? Fun oddball film.

This, along with several of these films, is listed as being in colour when it is actually in black and white.
